Donating or Dumping

Recently, I’ve seen a few interesting pieces about the wisdom of donating used medical equipment to the developing world.  The idea that it is acceptable and welcome to send one’s discarded or unwanted stuff (clothes, food, medical supplies. etc.) to those who have little is widely accepted.  Many organizations have taken this approach to address several issues.  In some cases, it works incredibly well, including: Toys for Tots, foodbanks, and Goodwill.  But, in all of these cases, these organizations have policies or procedures in place to insure that only high quality products reach the beneficiaries.
